Synopsis for the central california coast and bays including the Monterey bay..Greater farallones...and cordell bank national marine sanctuaries... Northwest winds remain moderate over the northern outermost waters. These locally stronger winds will generate hazardous conditions for small craft vessels. A moderate locally generated northwest swell will prevail through the end of the week. A building southerly swell will move through the waters alongside the chance for rain this coming weekend. Locally gusty winds will accompany these cold front as it sweeps through the waters early Sunday.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area 509 PM PDT Thu Apr 22 2021

SYNOPSIS. Mainly dry and seasonable weather conditions will persist through Friday night with periods of night and morning low clouds. Cooling will occur on Saturday as onshore flow and cloud cover increases region-wide ahead of an approaching weather system. Widespread rainfall is likely on Sunday into early Monday as a cold front drops southward across the region. Warming and drying trend is then expected beyond Monday.

DISCUSSION. as of 01:36 PM PDT Thursday . Marine stratus is holding on strong over the North Bay this afternoon with KSTS (Santa Rosa) as much as 14 deg F cooler compared to this time yesterday. Thus, have lowered maximum temperatures for the remainder of the day where onshore flow and low clouds remain in place. Cool, cloudy conditions also persist at the coast with temperatures warming into the 60s to lower 70s across the sunny interior at this hour.

The marine layer should compress slightly during the next 24 hours with less of an inland push of stratus overnight. However, still expecting much of the region to see night/morning low clouds with temperatures ranging from the 40s to lower 50s through early Friday morning. Only expecting subtle changes to the weather on Friday with morning clouds dissipating across the interior while a modest marine layer will maintain mostly cloudy conditions near the coast. Temperatures too will change little with mid/upper 50s at the coast to lower 70s inland.

Saturday will be a transition day with an increase in cloud cover and onshore flow ahead of an approaching weather system. This will bring temperatures down into the 60s even across much of the interior while 50s will be common near the coast. The latest thinking is that light precipitation may develop late Saturday near the coast as moisture advects inland while a majority of the region remains dry.

A cold front will then drop into the North Bay predawn hours on Sunday before progressing southward/inland through the day. This will provide generally light to occasionally moderate rainfall along the frontal boundary with the potential for lingering rain showers in wake of the frontal passage. Additionally, cannot rule out an isolated thunderstorm or two over the North Bay as instability increases as the main mid/upper level low drops into northern California. Latest ensembles continue to indicate rainfall totals from this system to range from 0.50"-1.00" for the North Bay hills /Santa Cruz Mountains, 0.25"-0.50" around SF Bay/Peninsula/North Bay valleys and 0.10"-0.25" for the interior East/South Bay valleys. Cooler temperatures are also likely region-wide on Sunday with daytime highs only reaching into the 50s and colder air advects southward.

Conditions will begin to dry out late Sunday night into Monday morning along with cooler temperatures, generally in the 40s region- wide. While a lingering shower or two may be possible through midday Monday, most precipitation will have exited our region to the east. A very gradual warming trend is expected through the remainder of next week as high pressure develops over the region.

AVIATION. As of 05:10 PM PDT Thursday . For the 00Z TAFs. Weather pattern features low pressure exiting the region and being replaced by a highly amplified ridge. The marine layer deepened significantly under the exiting trough and has brought MVFR to coastally influenced TAF sites through the day. Latest satellite imagery shows a healthy upstream feed with continued deep onshore advection of the stratus through SSW to NNE coastal gaps. Coastal surface eddies have also complicated the forecasting of the onshore advection of the stratus and model data is no longer aligned with observations thus generally low to medium confidence on marine layer coverage and timings. That said, building high pressure will compressed the marine layer tonight into tomorrow morning and limit the coverage of the stratus deck while lowering ceilings closer to the IFR level, especially near the coast. Rather breezy onshore winds of 14 to 22kt are possible through the remainder of the evening and will gradually taper off overnight. For tomorrow morning, a compressed yet stubborn marine layer will be present once again along the coast and through coastal gaps. Continued onshore flow through the day with advancing high clouds ahead of the next storm system arriving late Saturday night.

Vicinity of KSFO . MVFR with rather breezy onshore winds this evening. Satellite trends have been to shift the thick SF peninsula feed southward over the terminal, thus expecting BKN-OVC MVFR cigs to persist through the remainder of the day before lowering down to borderline MVFR/IFR level overnight due to the influence of the ridge. Patchy cigs will linger through midday tomorrow as HREF ensemble suggests KSFO will once again be on the edge of a stratus feed tomorrow.

SFO Bridge Approach . Similar to KSFO.

Monterey Bay Terminals . MVFR OVC cigs with a very robust onshore feed through the remainder of the day. Satellite imagery does show some thinning out of the lower levels of the marine stratus deck early this evening but the mid/top level stratus deck continues to push onshore unimpeded. For tonight, the influence of the ridge will compress the marine layer and force ceilings down to the IFR range through the middle of the night. Steady onshore flow and upstream stratus feed will bring MVFR cigs throughout the day tomorrow, though could see some brief midday clearing.

MARINE. as of 04:59 PM PDT Thursday . Northwest winds remain moderate over the northern outermost waters. These locally stronger winds will generate hazardous conditions for small craft vessels. A moderate locally generated northwest swell will prevail through the end of the week. A building southerly swell will move through the waters alongside the chance for rain this coming weekend. Locally gusty winds will accompany these cold front as it sweeps through the waters early Sunday.
